Lindsay, why do you always end up in such hair-y situations?
Lindsay Lohan’s return to the wild world ‘o movies isn’t quite the glamour-girl role we’re sure she envisioned for herself. Not only does the 22-year-old starlet get a serious headache in Sin City director Robert Rodriguez’s new flick, Machete, but she gets kidnapped, too!
In her first role since her abysmal 2008 ‘comedy’ Labor Pains, LiLo plays ditzy, gun-toting socialite April Benz – but her scenes aren’t all flashy action.
“Lindsay gets pulled by her hair and dragged from a hearse…it’s a pretty violent scene,” a production insider tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively, adding that the actress “totally rocked it” in her brief role. In fact, Lindsay’s character – who gets kidnapped and held for ransom by killer man Machete – is left in a migrant work field.
But will this plum part bring the fallen actress back from the brink of cinematic Siberia? There’s definitely a possibility, now that the film was picked up for distribution by Fox Studios at the Sundance Film Festival Jan. 22. In addition the film plays host to some pretty A-list names, like Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodriguez and Danny Trejo.
All we can say is, let’s just hope that Lindsay’s life won’t imitate art!
